Stayed here for one night and it was a little bit disappointing for the price. The rooms were not bad, but the bathrooms show incredible lack of maintainance, the shower doors didnt close properly and inside the shower it wasn´t very clean. On the other side, bed and air conditioning were comfortable. The pool and the gardens are nice. The... More

Althouth our main concern was to have a really good and safe pool for our young girls 5 & 2, we also made the decision to stay here based on price and location. This hotel is just a little bit outside the main street in Jaco, thus making tranquility a certainty. We found the hotel very quiet at nights, and... More

Hotel is clean and have what you need. Is not at the beach but has a good pool, personal friendly and good safe parking. Rooms a little old but well maintain. The location is good, excellent to pass by on a fair price

We booked this hotel through a deal site promising 3.5 stars - COMPLETELY misleading. The hotel grounds are decent, but our room was terrible: to start, the room was tiny and outdated, the bathroom moldy, the shower doors barely worked and the sink was detached from the wall balancing precariously on its pedestal. The bed was uncomfortable, the AC quit... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 days and 2 nights. It is a really nice hotel, rooms are clean and nice, and the pool is great. My room was right next to it so my son really enjoyed it. It has a playground, a gym and it is pet friendly (perfect!!). It does not have direct access to the... More

We went to this hotel at the end of our Nicaragua/Costa Rica trip in May 2013. That was to spend good time in a good place. The room was really nice, just besides the pools and the jacuzzi (not the best jacuzzi of the world). The hotel is just after a curve on the main road (few minutes on foot)... More

We ended up at this hotel when our first choice had an issue and we had to move. We arrived mid afternoon after a long bus trip from the Sarapiqui and were very tired. Our first room had a lot of mildew and the toilet did not work. The second room is much better but the shower head needs to... More

Don't say I didn't warn you. This place was the horrible but we had no choice because all the nice places had no vacancies. The room smelled of urine and very musty. There was no wash cloths and towels in the rooms and was given crappy pool towels. Breakfast was pretty good but I would never go back.

for 2 years we have been indulging the 'freedom' which is more like abuse of the Amapola open air disco to play live music on Saturday nights, I just tried to bear with it like a good neighbor, but last night was the last straw, horribly loud music until after 3a.m. One of the most abusive 'rights' to deny peace...
